  1. About 100 soccer fans have broken into the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, trashing temporary walls and lockers before Chile was to play Spain.

    The group was apparently mostly Chilean fans without tickets trying to get into the stadium.

    They sprinted through the large FIFA media center, causing some damage. Security guards were slow to respond and small in number — one guard grabbed a Chile fan by the neck.

  2. Renowned Mexican journalist León Krauze has reported on his Twitter account that dozens of Chile fans invaded the media center in the Maracana stadium where the Spain vs Chile match will be held.

    According to Krauze, the South America fans were trying to invade the field of the mystical Maracana stadium.

    Other reports of fans invading the press center have come through Social Networks. 

  3. According to another report Brazilian police have taken into custody 19 Chile fans for the press center invasion.
